Six Essential Roles of the CEO

From the May 2006 issue of Vistage International's newsletter to CEOs, comes this piece on the "Six Essential Roles of the CEO."

Exactly what should the CEO focus on? The role of the CEO encompasses six essential functions:

  1. Strategist
  2. Ambassador
  3. Inventor
  4. Coach
  5. Investor
  6. Student

BOTTOMLINE: "Most CEOs know what they need to do to fulfill their role. The problem is they allow themselves to get sucked into doing other people’s jobs. Focusing on the six key roles and your success profile will go a long way toward keeping you on track and ensuring that others are doing what you pay them to do.”
